Have you ever wanted to explore your brain? Well now you can with Brain Explorer.
Brain Atlas — “From the brain and the brain alone arise our pleasures, joys, laughter and jests, as well as our sorrows, pains and griefs” (Hippocrates). Here you can learn about the structure of your brain, and the body functions controlled by each part. Explore the Forebrain, Midbrain, Hindbrain, Spinal Column, and Cerebral Vasculature. This section is full of interesting information.
Focus on Brain Disorders — This is where you can find information on brain diseases and emotional diseases. You can learn how, and what part of the brain they effect. I have a friend with Bipolar Disorder, so I found the information here fascinating. They also study Anxiety Disorders, Dementia, Depression, Epilepsy, Migraines, Multiple Sclerosis, OCD, Panic Disorder, Parkinson’s Disease, PTSD, Schizophrenia, Sleep Disorders, and Strokes. Tons of great information here. A MUST READ.
Glossary — This is where you can find the terms that are currently on the site. Yep it’s a glossary of brain terms!
Neurological Control — Learn about Neurotransmissions, Action Potential, Synaptic Signal, Neurotransmitters, Pre-Synaptic Control, and Disorders of the Brain. This section is about the neurons that are firing around in our brain all day long.
Gallery — This is where you get to see the nifty pictures of the different parts of the brain. Being a visual learner this really helps me out to see the sections. I wish I had found this site when I was going to high school and was taking Anatomy.
You’d be out of your mind not to check this one out.
